Fairfax has thrown its support behind the CAMS Australian Rally Championship (ARC), with the region’s leading media outlet, The Courier, to be the Eureka Rally naming rights sponsor in 2018.
Ballarat’s leading daily newspaper will provide plenty of support to The Courier Eureka Rally, which will open the 2018 Championship season on 3-4 March.
CAMS General Manager of Motor Sport Michael Smith said everyone in the rally community was excited about starting the season in Ballarat.
“After last year’s exciting Championship battle, which came down to the very final round, we’re looking forward to kicking off 2018 with a bang at The Courier Eureka Rally,” Smith said.
“The Courier’s support of this event is great news for everyone involved.
“We’re looking forward to working The Courier’s team to deliver great rally content both in the lead up to, and during the event.”
As part of the agreement, The Courier will provide even more coverage of this event across its printed and digital publications.
The Courier’s Editor Eugene Duffy said he and his team were excited about supporting The Courier Eureka Rally.
“This event is one of the biggest motor sport events in regional Victoria and we are thrilled to be involved,” Duffy said.
“The Ballarat community is a passionate one and there is a real passion for motor sport, so we are pleased Fairfax Regional Media is extending our support and coverage of this event in 2018.
“Readers can expect to see plenty of colour and excitement from the event, as well as in depth previews in the lead up from our team on the sports desk.”
With fees for competitors significantly reduced in 2018, Smith said The Courier Eureka Rally would attract plenty of interest.
“It’s an exciting time for competitors and fans alike and we are hopeful of a strong list of entrants at all events in 2018,” Smith added.
